Workspace PowerHA for AIX
Created by Guest
Created on Jan 14, 2018

If ROHA takes CPU from another machine in EP, it returns it to EP as available, not to machine

We have two machines in EP and about 80 lpars on each (not all of them have PowerHA).

In case of big RG fallover it will take the needed CPUs from the second machine and the CPUs it was using on primary machine can go to unusable part of EP till manual change, so I'm "losing" the CPU power here

    This functionality has been improved from PowerHA 724.

    The logic has been updated to save the info about the source of the resources and returned to the same.
    Resources will be processed while releasing and made sure the CEC does not end up with all Unreturned resources.
